A CSS framework with 15M monthly downloads.

Tailwind CSS is an open-source CSS framework. The main feature of this library is that, unlike other CSS frameworks like Bootstrap, it does not provide a series of predefined classes for elements such as buttons or tables.

Here are some of the key reasons why most developers prefer Tailwind CSS:

No naming convention:

Having to name classes is one of the most difficult aspects of writing custom CSS. By offering utility-based classes, Tailwind CSS seamlessly resolves those issues.

Highly customizable

Tailwind CSS doesn’t provide you with a class name that represents the entire component; It provides you with a class name that represents a specific style such as height, width,etc. These utility classes can be used to create a component from scratch

Mobile-first strategy

It is simpler to build complex responsive layouts freely thanks to the availability of all kinds of utility classes.

Utility classes can be used across a range of breakpoints like sm, md, lg… which aids in creating intricate responsive layouts.

Caching

Tailwind CSS uses the same class names repeatedly, so you won’t have to load the same styles repeatedly! This shortens the time it takes for a page to load during the development phase.

Cross Framework

Since Tailwind CSS is a standalone framework, it can be used with virtually every current framework, including React, Angular, Gatsby, Laravel, and others.

Tailwind Community

Since tailwind has a huge community behind it, If you ever get stuck with any issue, you can ask your queries on Stackoverflow or other forums to resolve your issues within a matter of time.
